Every time a Trump poll comes out with even lower numbers, I always think "...and that's with people polled before (insert most recent insanity here)"
 
2017-08-04 09:55:13 AM  
Actually, he is quite popular.

You know it is bad when Trump's recent Rasmussen approval rating of 38% is lower than Obama's lowest ever Rasmussen approval rating...

Run that through the Trump translator machine.

"See, I'm just as popular as Obama despite the fake news attacks"

Oh, terrific.  Now you've done it.  Now they'll never cast a vote out of a sense of civic responsibility, because you've gone and forced them to spite you to assuage the hurt you've caused with your hateful, hateful rhetoric.

For comparison, Nixon was around 28% at the time of his resignation, and Bush II was around 33% when he left office.
 
2017-08-04 11:24:44 AM  
Perhaps the President referred specifically to his popularity in West Virginia, where the sudden influx of new coal industry jobs has certainly caused his popularity to skyrocket.

2017-08-04 11:26:02 AM  
Yeah right. The pollsters said he wouldn't win the election too, so we can safely conclude they're never even close to right about anything ever.

/unless the poll is favorable... then it's 100% accurate

if Trump had lost 0.1% approval everytime an approval story was greened on fark, he would be at -56% right now.

How crazy is he? Right wingers have switched to Both Sides Are Bad.
 
2017-08-04 11:30:29 AM  
Trump is correct he is more popular than ever. Most people mistake the approval rating with popularity but popularity is approval × FQ [FQ is Fanaticism Quotient]. As the number of people who support Trump decreases the Fanaticism of his remaining followers increase at a much higher rate. You need look no farther than that crazy uncle on facebook who has stepped up his posting.

so was what's-her-name from high school and where is she now?

you know what else is popular? Dunkin Donuts. Kardashians. Lotto. Fidget things.

Popular doesn't mean "good for you" - sometimes it means "on the way out".

From a TV perspective, 36% market share or brand awareness would be amazing.

From the perspective of an incumbent politician, that's terrible.

nmrsnr: Bush II was around 33% when he left office.


That sounds... high. I thought it was down into the teens during the worst of the Iraq War (2006 or thereabouts), and that was before the economy cratered and millions of people lost their jobs.

In the same way that Captain Tripps was popular in The Stand.

Your first point would be valid if there were 50-100 other Presidents that he was competing with for popularity.

The polls from Gallup mean about shiat, especially when it comes to how 2018 and 2020 are going to turn out.  In addition, the more polls like that come out, the more his supporters will double down.  Every attack on him is an attack on them.  Facts, numbers, etc., mean nothing in the face of that.

I was thinking Hillary would beat out Trump, so day of I was going to post, "Well, looks like the Technocracy manged to win this supplement."

But I forgot this is WoD, so of course Pentex won.
 
2017-08-04 11:47:20 AM  
And of that 36%, probably 30% are so locked into Trump, that he could be filmed eating live orphaned babies, and they would let it slide.

Just purchased an apartment on Amsterdam Ave in the UWS, is engaged, and working as managing editor for a major publication, because there isn't a damn bit of justice left in this world.

Fact - Trump only cares about his supporters

Fact - People who disapprove of him stop being his supporters

Theory - Those who remain are more fanatical than those who leave

Conclusion - The lower Trump's approval the more fanatical his supporters

Prediction - Trump will believe he is increasingly popular
